to this potential change in something that everyone is concerned about. it is why you saw president obama warning assad so stride endly this week. >> and there has got to be so much discussion and intelligence circles as to why now what is prompting president assad to do this. the question really is what is that line? what is the trigger that would launch a potential u.s. military response? >> well, i think your first point is really key. why is assad even going down this route? why are his commanders going down this route? we have seen the fighting, our colleague, arwa damon has been talking about this for days, we have seen the fighting pick up around damascus. this is the center of power for the assad regime. and the fighting is quite intense around there. he is feeling the pressure. it is believed, of that fighting in and around the capital. so perhaps that's why he, number one, is supporting potentially this movement of chemical material. what the red line is, u.s. officials say, it moved a bit. it was any movement of chemical weapons. now it is really they're looking for the intent to use t

you realize it's the other way around. that is it for today. have a greater week and we'll see you next fox news sunday. >> a fox urgent, breaking news on a one-on-one meeting held between president obama and house speaker boehner on the so-called fiscal cliff. and the two most important players involving the financial future of our nation. i'm harris falkner, we're told a meeting was held behind closed door and without the media's knowledge and both men tight-lipped about what was said and when we asked for comments, both giving us the same statement, quote, this afternoon the president and speaker boehner met at the white house to discuss efforts to resolve the fiscal cliff, we're not reading out details of the communication, but the lines of communication remain open, end quote. this meeting comes as the white house and congress appear to be at at impasse, you know by now is crippling spending and tax hikes and could cost us jobs and send us back into recession and to solve the problem, republicans say we must prevent our ballooning national debt from crushing generations. and
giving stuff away. if obama remains intransigent, let him be the one to take us over the cliff, and then let the new house, which is sworn in weeks before the president, immediately introduce and pass a full across-the-board restoration of the george w. bush tax cuts. >> so i don't think that's inconsistent with anything that i just said. i agree with him 100%. what have i been saying for a week? do not cave. compromise. do not cave. if the president doesn't want to meet us halfway on massive entitlement cuts, on reforming those systems to save medicare and medicaid, social security, cutting defense, reforming the taxes, then do not meet -- if he doesn't want to meet halfway, but i've got to tell you, i am heartened with what i saw in the president's tone yesterday. i loved hearing him tell a group of americans yesterday, hey, we're going to get this thing done. i feel good about it. i love that he agreed to sit down with john boehner one on one. richard, you've done negotiations on all levels. i really liked the tone the president was sending. and by the way, i felt like charl
of scotus blogged last week. quote, i have never before seen cases i believe would be discussed 200 years from now. bush v. gore, obama care were relative pip skeks. the government's assertion of the power to prohibit a gofg couple to marry or to refuse to recognize such a marriage is profound. so the opposite claim that five justices can read the federal constitution to strip the people of the power to enact the laws governing such a fundamental social institution. you know, elizabeth, it's not like we're talking about rock of ages, the big surprise. we have nine states that have done it. in this past election, which i think is pivotal, four states did it completely by popular vote. no court ruling on rights, just public will. >> for the first time in 40 years in four states thanks to the efforts of chad and a lot of other people, for the first time there was a populist vote, and the people spoke. they have never spoken in favor before, but there are really two ways. it's also equal protection under the law and also that the court has found it to be a fundamental right. this is an extrao
